Paleontological Museum of Rotonda

Inside the Natural and Paleontological Museum, the recomposed remains of a specimen of Elephas antiquus italicus dating back to the middle upper Pleistocene (400,000 – 700,000 years ago) are exhibited as well as other fossil finds of other animal, vegetable and mineral species. Other important animal remains have recently been discovered, including the skeleton of a Hippopotamus and, for the first time, a hut and some shards from the Bronze Age (1,500-2,000 years BC), evidence of the presence of man in the Valle del Mercure valley, today in the Pollino National Park.

Natural history Museum of Vulture

Musei Naturalistici

The natural beauty of an untouched ecosystem like that of the Vulture is on display inside the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo in Monticchio (Rionero in Vulture).
The museum route includes seven stages on two levels, from Atella’s Homo Erectus to the present day, which offer knowledge of the urban settlements of the area and allow you to explore the animal and plant world, home of the rare “Bramea” moth.
